Join the inaugural #ReadLearnEmpower event and support The Smith Family
We're excited to launch the first‑ever Read, Learn, Empower event in support of The Smith Family.
From 3 August to 30 September 2020, we're inviting you to take part in the nationwide event, to help Australian children from disadvantaged backgrounds get the most out of their education.
New customers can claim their FREE 30 days' access to ABC Reading Eggs here and enjoy the multi‑award winning online reading program for kids ages 2–13. We'll donate $1* for every ABC Reading Eggs signup to The Smith Family, to help young Australians from disadvantaged backgrounds succeed at school and create better futures for themselves.
Existing customers can also take part by uploading a video showing how ABC Reading Eggs empowers your child to read and learn. For every video entry we receive on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, we'll donate a 12-month online learning subscription* to The Smith Family, to help support a child's education. Find out more about how to make your video entry stand out.
Our goal is to raise $15,000 to support The Smith Family's crucial education programs, as well as donate 1000x learning subscriptions by 30 September.
Plus, there are exciting prizes up for grabs for the five most outstanding video entries! The first prize winner will receive a 32GB iPad (7th Generation) worth $529, and the top five entries will each receive a $100 iTunes gift card and an ABC Reading Eggs Mega Book Pack worth $252.
By taking part in this year's Read, Learn, Empower event, you'll be supporting life‑changing programs like The Smith Family's Learning for Life, which helps more than 56,000 young Australians from disadvantaged backgrounds succeed at school and create better futures for themselves. Find out more about Read, Learn, Empower here.
Australian primary schools are also invited to participate by submitting a class video or written testimonial, which highlights how students engage with ABC Reading Eggs. The school with the most outstanding video entry will receive a Blake Education literacy bundle worth $2000. Find out how your school can take part here.
*ABC Reading Eggs will donate up to a maximum of $15,000 and a maximum of 1000x 12‑month combined learning subscriptions to The Smith Family.
